#327 involves your child. Yes, yours! I have a bad habit of getting on to other people's children. Not just the ones I'm related to but ANY child within yelling distance. (See, Sister, it's not just your munchkins!).
I don't do it out of spite or hatefulness. Although, you may think so when you see my nostrils flare. I do it for the good of mankind, I do it for world peace, and okay....sometimes I do it because your child is being a brat.
Here's where I go wrong...I assume you want your child to grow up and be a productive, well-adjusted, God-fearing adult. And when I see them hit you, kick you, talk back, disobey adults, or just be flat out mouthy. Well, well, well, let me help you out by telling the little darling where they went wrong.
Now at this point you are saying, "but Sunie, how would you feel if I got on to your kids?". Let me tell you, sister, I am embarrassed when someone else has to make my kids behave in public. Plus, chances are, you won't beat me to it!!
Since this little habit of mine is not always appreciated, I'll make you a little deal. You show your kids the proper way to behave (a good start would be getting off your cell phone long enough to pay attention) and I promise not to embarrass you in public!
Wish us both luck!
